When I was born my grandmother didnt see me for my first three days. First child of her last son, a girl! How will the family name continue? But I was her favourite grandchild ‘ever’ very soon (oh thats a big status being one of 19 first cousins) 🙂 ofcourse my baby brother crying ALL the time helped bolster my status.
Times have changed people say, but for a large majority they havent. They face it day in and day out, Meena and women from her community show they will change and then need to change for women.
